Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Monday, June 8

New data is released by state health officials every day at 11 a.m.

Monday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows the numbers of confirmed cases and deaths dropping some, while testing continues to be over 10,000.

Of the 11 new deaths, one person was in their 20s. It's unclear if that case, which is out of Hennepin County, included any underlying health conditions. But it is the second death of a Minnesotan in their 20s in the past three days of reporting. 

It should be noted that death reporting tends to be lower on Mondays due to a lag from over the weekend.

Meanwhile, hospitalizations increased from 450 Sunday to 452 today, though the number of patients in ICU dropped by one to 198 – the lowest it has been since May 11. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 354,226 (up from 344,203)
  • Confirmed cases: 28,224 (up from 27,886)
  • Deaths: 1,197 (up from 1,186)
  • Still hospitalized: 452 (up from 450)
  • Patients in intensive care: 198 (down from 199).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 23,657 (up from 22,992)

There have been 11 patients deemed to have "probably" died from COVID-19, though that total isn't included in the aforementioned death toll. Those cases represent victims who never received a COVID-19 test, but for whom doctors believe within a reasonable degree of certainty that the virus caused their death.

Meanwhile, health officials are encouraging anyone who attended protests in recent days to go in for a COVID-19 test, and they recommend doing so whether you have symptoms or not.
